Do you store clothes on top of it while it's running? If yes take that stuff off of there and NEVER use it for anything i mean anything. I know it makes a good table top but you are killing it by not letting your sensors do there job correctly.Believe this i know from trials.
Good Luck

Hi I have a kenmore elite oasis dryer. And all of a sudden it only will run for about a minute and then it shuts off. I tried turning it back on again and it does the same thing. Then after the third time...


The first suggestion I have for you is to simply run an Air Fluff cycle with no heat.

If the Air Fluff cycle runs okay then the problem is most likely with the thermistor.

You can try to run the dryer with the vent hose off and see if there is a difference.

I have a kenmore dry that seems to hum very load once it heats up. If you turn it off and rest for 30 minutes it will sound fine again until it is 15 minutes into the cycle. What would be the likely...


Hello Bill,

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news,but what your describing sounds exactly what a bad motor will do...run whiles is realitivly cool,cut off when hot the restart after a cool down period and run for a while till hot again.

Gas dryer runs for 30 mins then shuts off.


This is a common problem that is not a good one. But the motor is goin bad. If you try to start it you will hear like a hum then start. Motor is going bad and over heating and shutting down on overload. Sorry. Hope this helps.

Have a 90 series kenmore dryer, won't always run. replaced the motor about 6 months ago, and now it will sometimes run, sometimes not. It gets hot, and will run for a bit then shut down, then start up...


If the timer is not advancing but is ticking that could be the problem. A dryer achieves a set temperature and stays there for a certain amount of time during a cycle. If the time never changes it may just keep heating up until the heat sensor shuts it down. If it is starting and shutting down its likely still related to the heat sensor.

Kenmore Gas Dryer Gets Hot, Shuts Off Early in Cycle


Sounds like a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a certain temp. It should be mounted on the exhause duct inside the back of the dryer. It should look something like the one in the picture:

Hope this helped and best wishes.

KENMORE DRYER HEATING PROBLEM


You need a new Motor. The thermal overload on the motor shuts it down,until motor cools down.
